Too often organizations assume that one type of collaborative conferencing will meet all their needs. In reality, different forms of collaborative conferencing meet different needs. It would be wasteful to install a video conferencing system if an assessment indicated that all people needed is good quality audio with graphics support. Similarly, installation of a graphics system may not meet the needs of all the intended users — especially those needing to see facial expressions of others. Any needs assessment should look at all forms of collaborative conferencing — audio, data/web, and video – real-time and delayed.

In order to design and implement a successful collaborative conferencing system (audio, web, video, telepresence, and unified communications), it is important to undertake a thorough analysis of an organization’s needs. Input must be obtained from actual users.
A needs assessment provides value in four ways:
- Provides data needed to develop economic justification for determining system cost and dollar benefits.
- Gathers input for the system design phase by identifying functions, locations, and specific equipment needed.
- Helps to assure that once a system is installed it will be used effectively for the right applications.
- Contributes input into long-range plans for system expansion.
The purpose of a benchmark study is to determine how conferencing and collaborative communications technologies meet the needs of the client and how the client’s adoption and usage of the technologies compare to other organizations who have successfully adopted video conferencing and collaborative communications tools. AVI-SPL maintains a database of 70 end-user organizations and what they do related to conferencing and collaboration for this purpose.
